Abia State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Mr. Denis Jingi has said the permanent orientation camp in the state is on the verge of being consumed by gully erosion.

He appealed to the state government to renovate the camp located at Umunna in Bende Local Government.

Jingi, who made the appeal yesterday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Umuahia, decried the level of dilapidation at the camp.

“I’m calling on the state government to renovate the camp. Gully erosion is ravaging facilities at the camp and if urgent intervention is not done, it will take over the hostels.

“The implication is that the number of corps members deployed in the state will reduce.”

He said the scheme was working with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control to ensure observance of the COVID-19 protocol at the camp.

“Anybody that comes to camp must be tested and if the person tests positive, he or she will be sent to the isolation centre at Amachara,” the coordinator added.

Jingi praised the government for the recent donation of utility vehicle and its sustained support to the scheme.
